2009 Call Out To All Pro-Migrant Bloggers

It's a time of great change.

After eight miserable years of The Decider, and Republican reign in Washington, a breath of fresh air is on it's way.

For the first time in years, those who fight for human-rights, civil-rights, and the oppressed can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.

The struggle will not be easy. But years in the political and social wilderness have only strengthened and hardened us for the battle ahead.

In the last few years our numbers have grown exponentially and we have organized on a scale not seen in decades.

But things have moved quickly and many new allies and friends have sprung up in the last year.

So, if you have, or know of a pro-migrant blog or website, write about migrant and/or immigration issues, human rights, or other issues of concern to the broader immigrant community - leave a link in the comments, or e-mail me and give me some info on your site so I can add you to the blogroll

I'd eventually like to have as complete a listing as possible of the pro-migrant blogsphere.

Harvesting Justice is the blog of Farmworker Justice, a 501(c)(3) organization working to empower migrant and seasonal farmworkers. We are working hard to hopefully pass AgJOBS this year, (if not comprehensive immigration reform!)

mexicotrucker.com for issues concerning immigration, NAFTA, protectionism. Voted one of the Top 10 ex-pat Mexico blogs a couple of months ago.

And of course, the in your face, take no prisoners blog http://immigrationclearinghouse.org

Take care Duke

Thanks Sabrina, Barb and pcorn54.

Those are all great blogs ... most I've read many times.

I'll add these to the list shortly.

I usually leave this "call out" open for a few weeks so hopefully many, many, more will be adding their info.

combines work on 'illegal' migrations, for example http://www.nodo50.org/Laura_Agustin/false-papers-and-illegal-migrations-punjabis-in-london and concern about human rights of migrants who sell sex.

No pro-illegal immigrant/open borders blog for you, but that breath of fresh air you are anticipating is going to be BO and it will stink for at least 4 years, maybe.

that's what I love about trolls ...the infantile humor.

Ha ha, good response to the troll, Duke.

Dear Duke :

I congratulate you on your efforts to fight for Humanity and for kindness to Immigrants.

I have a ( horrible ! ) site that specializes in Murder and Brutality against Immigrants, and also Against Blacks, Asians, Gays, etc ....

The Gangs of Cowards that attack with baseball bats, with knives, or murdering a human being by kicking do not ask for legal papers and do not review legal situations.

They attack, just because they hear a foreign language spoken, because they do not like the color of the other person, or because they overheard five or ten seconds of a conversation that they did not like.

Some people have been confused with another wrong "color" and had been crippled. Even if they are of the same color of the attacker.

See all this :


And discussions about Demography of Minorities for particular States and Politics of Minorities. Including Letters and Discussions of Friends about Immigration Reform or not. Here :


Latinos are Millennials in Big Proportions and Percentages. So the name is approppriate.

I celebrate again your sites and offers and I also offer to help other similar sites that want to appear in my sites for comments or as interesting readings, or letters on Immigration, Raciality, or Aggression against "Racials". And I can link them.

Hi, Duke1676. This is Alfredo Martin Bravo de Rueda Espejo. You have posted comments to some of my entries on immigration at Daily Kos. I sent you an e-mail and gave you my telephone number. Precisely because losing the opportunity of immigration reform this year would leave it without serious possibilities maybe until 2013, I sent you that e-mail with links to my entry proposing a plan to make such reform possible. Let me know if you receive the e-mail. If you don't find my e-mail, write to me to the e-mail address posted in my section at Daily Kos.
